Reply to "Finally Starting - New Layout, Wiring Diagram, Control Panel"

Thanks, Mark.  It has definitely surprised me how much progress I've made.  This wiring is insane though, it is without a doubt what has taken the longest so far.

Raising4daughters, thank you for your kind words.  It took me quite some time to come up with this design.  For a while my design was two simple loops with an inner yard.  I'd move stuff around, but couldn't get away from the loops.  I beat my own stubbornness and changed the inner loop from O54 to O42 and I was able to change things up.

RTR, thank you.  Hopefully I'll be able to run them soon!  You're right and she must have figured out what it was because I walked away for a minute came back to her cleaning off the Z500 with her tongue...

Thanks Doug, (and for the awesome Control Panel video that you made.)

Update 3/14/17:

Last night I was able to completely finish the wiring behind the TIU and AIU.  (I hope its complete anyway, I'll find out if I missed something when I power up the system...).   Next up, soldering to the track and making all of the wiring connections at the control panel, turnouts, and operating track.
